What is wrongful termination?

We often hear the term “wrongful termination” used in the media and in casual conversation. You may think you know what wrongful termination means, but if your business has been accused of wrongfully terminating an employee, then you need to know the true legal definition.

As FindLaw.com explains, many people think that they have been “wrongfully” terminated after being let go for reasons that they do not agree with. However, in order for the illegal form of wrongful termination to exist, the employee had to have been fired for a reason that is illegal.

Examples of illegal reasons to fire someone include discrimination based on gender, race, ethnicity, religion or disability.

Another form of illegal firing is letting an employee go after he or she files a legal complaint against the employer, which is also known as retaliation. It is also illegal to fire an employee after he or she shed light on employer wrongdoing, also known as whistle blowing.

Although all of these examples of wrongful termination seem pretty straight forward, they often involve complicating facts and details when they happen in real life, so it isn’t always easy to know whether wrongful termination claims have merit or not.

The only way to find out for sure is by meeting with an experienced attorney.

All it takes is one lawsuit filed by a disgruntled employee to cause significant damage to your business’ reputation and bank account.

When employers face being sued by current or former employees, they need to be represented by an experienced attorney with knowledge in business and employment law in order to mitigate the damages and take the best route going forward.
